I struggled to come up with an appropriate title for this blog – Maarten is from the Netherlands and Rebeccas is from England – But they married in Scotland! So a Dutch English Wedding Glasgow at House for an Art Lover in Glasgow will have to sum it up!
As soon as I spoke to these two over a video call I knew it was going to be a winner – They have a cat, a dog, play video games and listen to heavy metal – TBH That could be my website bio! So when they went ahead to book I was over the moon.
They both got ready at The Alamo guest house in the West End of Glasgow – I wouldn’t normally speak about the prep but this one had an old school victorian door bell! Like, you had to pull a fancy door knob thing with all your might to get the tiniest tinkle ever. Just want to write it here to commit it to memory….
House for an Art Lover Wedding October
BTW This was also the wettest day on record for 2023 – With Glasgow even getting an Amber Rain warning! But thankfully we someone managed to miss most of it and got some epic photos, umbrella included.
We thought we had got away with any drama until the firs alarm went off! Meaning we had to evacuate every guest so the fire brigade could give it the all clear – A wedding isn’t a wedding without some mild drama.
So much good stuff at this wedding;
The grooms Dad doing his speech during the ceremony, the bride & Groom jumping the broom! (A first for me), the grooms family doing a 5/6 song set in the evening. Covering famous Beatles song and changing the lyrics to words about the couple (Amazing btw) and Nothing Else Matters by Metallica for the first dance. I really hope the photos do this epic day justice!
